IKEA sell-back program

The IKEA sell-back program is IKEA’s way at trying to be more eco-friendly, and for “Green Friday” you can earn double the store credit this month.

The IKEA sell-back program is a way for IKEA Family members to get rid of secondhand IKEA furniture by selling it back to IKEA for store credit.

  • Allow 5 business days for IKEA to assess your applicatoin, then check your application status. If the item is still processing, IKEA says to wait another day and check again.
  • If your application is approved, bring your fully assembled IKEA item to your selected store within 30 days of the date the item was accepted, along with your IKEA Family card and unique application code to get your in-store credit.
